The product code/Manufacturer ID made me choke...
I'm literally sitting here, tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard on that one.

Worst of all it keeps setting me off with the giggles.

Well done sir!

Fantastic, i guess i need to start to look for a connector. Or desolder the one from my apollo 8mb ram card if not 😂🤣😂
Some of the Amiga dealers are carrying them as standard stock these days, now that manufacturing runs have been done. For example, RetroReady I know have lots in stock.

So probably i should reveal more about this... its a Buffee adaptor for A1200. A vampire killer.

Buffee to TF bus runs at 100Mhz. TF doubles bus cycles up to 32bit. So no slowdown from buffee being 16bit (well there is a 10ns penalty over a TF1260)....

TF1260/TF360 is still my preferred amiga accelerator but if you want a non genuine CPU.. Buffee is the way to go.

Any advantages in comparison to 060?

Probably availability long term. I'm also guessing it would be trivial to implement that AMMX instruction set that the Apollo guys keep harping on about.

It might cut the price down on 060s too.

If I had two A1200s this would be the choice fir my second one, nicely done.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.
